Your arrival in Australia will be easy. We’ll arrange your airport transfer to our luxury backpacker hostel, WakeUp – voted Australia’s best! Start exploring Sydney or sleep off your jetlag before meeting your Group on Monday morning.
In your ’Just Landed’ info session our team will provide an overview of everything you need to know for your first week in Australia and explain everything included in your package. We organise bank cards, tax file numbers and discuss your work plans in Australia. Then we take a guided walking tour of the city including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House and the Botanic Gardens. Bring your camera - there are loads of photo opportunities along the way! That evening, meet the group for our Welcome Dinner. Dinner and 1 drink included.
There’s no better way to discover beautiful Sydney Harbour! We take a cruise of Sydney Harbour and check out the sights including Darling Harbour, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Fort Dennison, Luna Park and Watson’s Bay. Take an awesome cliff-top walk, swim at amazing beaches and enjoy the spectacular views of Sydney by boat. Spend the day cruising, swimming and chilling on Sydney Harbour!
Today we depart the city for our 3-day / 2-night Sydney Beach Escape at UltimateOz Basecamp. Located north of Sydney the area is famous for its stunning beaches, amazing sand dunes and abundance of Aussie wildlife including dolphins, whales, koalas, echidnas and possums. UltimateOz Basecamp is set within 6 acres of rainforest, just 5 minutes walk to the beach and home to Josie, a tame kangaroo who lives on the property. Check out the beach and have a swim before we enjoy pizzas for dinner. Grab a torch and come possum-spotting. (Dinner included).
After breakfast we explore the sand dunes by 4WD, learn about local Aboriginal culture from our informative guides and then ride to the highest dunes to try sandboarding! We return to Basecamp for lunch then we take a guided bush walk through Tomaree National Park. Enjoy stunning scenery and breathtaking views and the chance to see koalas in the treetops (all year round) and migrating whales (May - November). Tonight we enjoy a BBQ dinner and drinks around the campfire. (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included)
Today we take an amazing dolphin watching cruise and get up close to wild bottlenose dolphins. There’s also a chance to see turtles and whales. Relax on deck or ride in the boom net while dolphins swim underneath. Then we hit the beach for a swim before heading back to Sydney. Check into WakeUp and spend the rest of the day at your leisure. (Breakfast included).
Get dressed up for a fun night on the town! Meet the Group at one of our favourite party bars before jumping on our Sydney Party Bus for our Sydney Pub Crawl. We visit 5 bars in the city and near the beach and receive a free drink at each one! (Express entry to 5 bars and 5 drinks included).
